PhDnet@CAIS. Webinar about automatic text analysis with R

PhDnet Digitale Methoden
Due to the Corona pandemic, the PhDnet@CAIS continues its series on digital methods for humanities scholars virtually.
In the webinar on 9 June 2020, Svenja Boberg M.A. (University of Münster) will give an insight into the possibilities and limitations of automated text analysis. Different methods will be presented and discussed with examples of use, as well as advantages and limitations of these methods. Both the occurrence of typical terms or words that occur together as well as more complex methods such as the detection of emotions or topics will be dealt with.
At the same time, the participants get to know the most important R packages in order to independently carry out automated content analyses using smaller questions as examples. The tools and methods presented can be tried out directly in the webinar. The participants will critically discuss their possibilities and limitations and share their own experiences.
The event will be held via Zoom. Previous knowledge is not required. Any software that needs to be installed will be announced in good time. Please note that the webinar is already fully booked. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Nina Hahne (nina.hahne@cais-research.de).

The PhDnet@CAIS is an open networking offer of the Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS) and supports PhD students in the long term – even beyond the completion of their dissertation. The network offers academic contacts across disciplinary boundaries. It organises events for PhD students whose projects deal with the social opportunities and risks of digitalisation.
